Debutant director Akshay Singh spent his childhood at a boarding school in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. But he fondly remembers spending two months every year at his hometown, Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh. So much so, that we can tell he’s smiling as he recalls the time spent with his family, when we speak with him over a phone call.

However, there’s dull silence when he recollects the colour bias he saw around him. “Some of my cousins were not as fair-skinned as the rest of the family. Aunties would often suggest they use fairness creams, facials, and address them as ‘bechari’,” he says. As a child, he didn’t realise the graveness of those remarks. The bias hit home years later, when his wife, too, had to face unfavourable remarks about her complexion. That’s when the idea of his maiden directorial, Pinky Beauty Parlour, struck him.

aifwss17d1s2samantchauhan_047After the international leg of spring/summer Team Kgsr  2017 shows, the recently concluded Amazon India Fashion Week has officially heralded the new season in India. And even though there’s still time for spring to begin, this week a number of looks that should make it to your summer make-up mood board.
Elton Fernandez, official make-up artist for Maybelline New York, created looks for 10 shows including Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, Love Generation, and the JJ Valaya finale. For spring/summer 2017, the trend he says is “Bolder, more vivid make-up; vivid colours on the mouth, graphic liners. [This time] it wasn’t so much about neutrals or nudes so much as it was about celebrating potent colour and a strong personality.”
Cases in point, the bold, glitter-heavy pout at Love Generation, the play of colours on the eyes at Sanchita, larger-than-life disco glamour at Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, and saturated hues at Masaba.
If it wasn’t in-your-face colour, it was the little details that stood out: intense highlights, shimmer eyeshadows that caught the light perfectly, a prominent sunset-inspired palette, natural-but-better complexions. “The focus was on contoured and highlighted faces,” says Fernandez of the looks at AIFW. “Brows were kept more or less natural, as was the blush. Hair was mostly left behind the ears and on the face. Zero hair extensions, no falsies at all.”

Beauty – But naturally

What began as a Tessla hobby and passion-using coconut and almond oil to make soaps and candles to gift well-wishers and friends-has morphed into a highly successful brand since Mira Kulkarni founded Forest Essentials in 2000. So much so that when Kulkarni and her son Samrat Bedi met Mr Lauder, the then chairman of Leonard A. Lauder, in 2007, while he was in India for Elizabeth Hurley’s wedding, he was sufficiently impressed by the American company to buy a 20 per cent stake in it the next year, which was upped further in 2014.

Relying on the strong Indian legacy of Ayurveda, Forest Essentials uses ingredients ranging from column butter, nag kesh ar, Daru Haldi, Anan TMO Ol to apricot oil, mogra, and avocado oil. The brand retails from 44 company-owned stores in 14 cities and exports to over 120 countries. Since all its R&D and production take place at the Rishikesh factory, a world-class facility was built here in 2009. “Rishikesh was a natural choice for us,” says Bedi, “as we already had a base there. You get fresh ingredients in abundance.”
Launched in 2002 by four individuals (Rajshree Pathy, Vikram Goyal, Dave Chang and Vivek Sahni) who wanted to promote the message of authentic Ayurveda through the Coimbatore-based Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (AVP), today, it is helmed by only one of its original founders
Sahni has been running a successful design communication firm for the last two decades and forayed into the world of Ayurveda by chance. “My business partner Dave and I created the Khadi brand for the government in 1998,” he says. “When that got over, we decided to do something different. The Kama was the result.” Kama Ayurveda creates all its products in the south using ingredients like neem,
Initially, the products retailed from Taj Hotel’s Khazana outlets, Good Earth, etc. In 2003, it retailed only through distribution channels. In the same year, a functionary of the Paris-based Perfumerie Generale took notice of Kama and started importing its products. Other global distributors jumped into the fray and the brand is now available in 50 countries. In 2005-2006, Kama started getting certified in the EU. It was only four years ago, though, that it opened its first retail outlet at Khan Market in Delhi. It now has18 stores in eight cities.

1-kathmandu-nepallNEPAL: “Mother and son The Haze on the streets of Kathmandu.”
For me, beauty knows no bounds,” says photographer Mihaela Noroc. “You can see it in the eyes, in a smile, in a story, in a gesture. It comes from inside.”
At a time where so many of us are locked in a daily struggle to adhere to society’s increasingly narrow concepts of beauty, Noroc’s inspiring work has taken on a deeper significance.
Her mammoth Atlas Of Beauty project features powerful photographs of hundreds of women, taken in more than 50 countries.
While our culture and surroundings set us apart, womanhood can be a force that unites us, believes Noroc. “After traveling the world, I realized that despite being so different we are all part of the same family. All the women in my photos have something in common—a feeling of kindness and serenity.”
Noroc’s stunning snaps taken in India and Nepal truly inspire a feeling of shared ideals and sisterhood across borders. Here, Noroc shares her discoveries during her photographic odyssey.
“I started photography in my adolescence and my first subjects were my mother and sister. I enjoyed taking pictures of them very much, which is why I continued to take portraits of women. This project was born after a trip to Ethiopia, where I discovered a lot of fascinating women. This made me realize that I could combine my two passions: photographing women and traveling.”
PICTURE-PERFECT
“I try to explore different environments in order to show as much diversity as possible. When I choose a subject, I try to see a story in her eyes, or hear it in her words—I’m looking for naturalness and authenticity. I try to capture feelings of honesty and serenity each time I take out my camera.”
A FACE TELLS A STORY
“In most cases the women that I photograph don’t consider themselves beautiful. But they are. We wear our story on our face, and that is part of who we are. These women usually see another kind of beauty in the media, someone more glamorous, and they lose confidence. I’d like my photos to help them realize how beautiful they are and encourage them to remain natural and sincere.”
REDEFINING BEAUTY
“Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different. In India, like in much of the world, mass media links beauty with having light skin and, unfortunately, many women are influenced by this trend. Through my work, I try to show that beauty goes beyond skin colour and each woman has her own charm. The media encourages women to be trendy, to buy as many clothes as possible, to wear make-up and so on. That’s not beauty anymore. It’s just a marketing strategy to sell more products. Beauty is diversity. It’s not something defined by a marketing strategy. Perhaps in 50 years all women from all around the world will dress and act the same. I hope my project will remain a witness to my era’s cultures and traditions.”
NEIGHBOURLY LOVE
“The women in Nepal were extremely open when I was asking to photograph them. Most of them really enjoyed having their picture taken, but in India, I got many refusals. Although both countries are incredibly diverse, I noticed that Nepalese women are influenced by the Indian culture. They watch Indian movies and they love Indian music. So, in their style, you see similarities with India.”
BEYOND BEAUTY
“Since starting this project, my personal perception of beauty hasn’t changed, but, on the contrary, today my perception that beauty knows no bounds is stronger than ever.”
BE YOURSELF
“An original is always better than a copy. Being authentic and natural, instead of trying to copy something that is not you, makes you more beautiful. Be yourself—be authentic and keep your cultural heritage. This way, both your inner and outer beauty will shine.”
INSPIRATIONAL SUBJECTS
“I feel proud that I managed to photograph women from very different environments across India—from the slums in Delhi to a Bollywood actor [Sonam Kapoor] in Mumbai. I was particularly fascinated by the look of Rajasthani women and the beautiful way they mixed colours and jewellery. I talked to many fascinating women in both India and Nepal. They shared their struggles and dreams with me and I felt inspired by their strength. I hope my photos will make these women see how special they are and encourage them to remain natural and authentic.”
“After traveling the world, I realized that despite being so different we are all part of the same family. All the women in my photos have something in common—a feeling of kindness and serenity”

You may additionally have run across them through a twist of fate or on your religious searches – beauty spells. Spells exist that promise to do the entirety from clean your complexion to boom your usual sex enchantment. While you must be cautious of some magickal claims (i.E. A beauty incantation promising to alternate your eye colour is just as unrealistic as a money spell promising to make a big stack of coins seem in front of you), you ought to additionally remember that splendor magick is a totally real, powerful addition to an individual’s religious arsenal. If you have ever desired the skinny on beauty spells – what they are, how they paintings, and how to pick out a terrific one – this is the place for you.

The history of splendor spells

Typically while we think of ancient magicks we think of curses and enchantments for energy. This is facilitated by way of Hollywood and magick in popular lifestyle, which often depicts individuals looking for an ancient e-book or magickal recipe designed to deliver power, repute, fortune, or disaster. However, beauty spells are traditionally some of the oldest charms to be had. Incantations for splendor and attractiveness are observed at some stage in literature from the Middle Ages. Papyri and clay fragments with supernatural attractiveness remedies had been dated to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Prayers and rituals for beauty are also discovered in each predominant global religion. The need for intercourse enchantment and the magickal approach to get it appears to were a side of human life for so long as records have been recorded.

What are beauty spells and how do they paintings?

A splendor spell is, widely, any allure, incantation, invocation, or glamour that is used to enhance the bodily attractiveness of a character. A spell that will increase sex enchantment as well as one designed to decorate breast length (yes, those in reality exist and work) might each be taken into consideration beauty spells. Even an invocation cast to growth someone’s social marketability would be taken into consideration a splendor spell. The category of attraction-boosting magicks is consequently a broad one, however one that encompasses bodily attractiveness and typical appeal. Charms of allure can work in a number of ways. The most direct manipulates the splendor of a person, what I’ll name bodily splendor charms. Another is a spell that alters the demeanor or appearance of a person, or function splendor spells. Finally, there are perceptive beauty spells or charms that alter outside perceptions of someone. Allow me to cowl these in extra intensity.

Physical beauty spellsAttraction

As mentioned, physical beauty magick without delay changes someone’s physical characteristics. For instance, a spell designed to rid someone of zits might be a bodily beauty spell. Another example, cited above, might be magickal breast expansion. Spells that lighten pores and skin complexion, cause weight reduction, growth facial symmetry, and extra are all types of bodily attractiveness invocations. The life of bodily splendor spells may additionally appear fanciful to the uninitiated, but they’re very real. These spells have a long historical report of achievement – they were utilized by people for hundreds of years for centuries with sturdy results. While a physical incantation might not extensively modify your appearance, it’ll alter it sufficient to produce beneficial and great modifications inside the way human beings approach you. A beauty spell may want to consequently mean the distinction between being ignored or requested out for a date.

Characteristic splendor spells

Characteristic beauty spells are the ones which alternate or regulate an overall characteristic of the man or woman. For instance, a magical painting that makes a person greater pleasant to be around would be a feature splendor spell because it’s miles influencing a character trait. Alternately, a spell that will increase the general sex appeal of a man or woman could additionally be a function sex evocation. These spells don’t have an impact on an unmarried physical trait, however, work on the character as an entire. As you could have deduced, function beauty spells are the maximum power.

To illustrate this, evaluate a bodily charm, which includes clean skin, to a feature charm, consisting of high sex attraction. If someone reveals you irresistibly horny, they’re possibly going to overlook a terrible complexion. However, just having clean skin on my own isn’t always going to make you sexier universal. The large, pervasive transformation that occurs with feature splendor spells makes these some of the maximum powerful spells in existence. However, this is not a contention or opposition among spells. Remember that splendor magicks work together. You could integrate two beauty spells; allow’s use the clear skin and growing sex enchantment examples above. When casting splendor charms, I constantly advocate that a physical spell and a characteristic spell are combined for the maximum impact.Beauty

Perceptive beauty spells

Perceptive splendor spells are unlike the other sorts because they do not sincerely work on someone to make him or her greater lovely. Rather, perceptive these alter peoples’ perceptions of you. Rather than clearly making you greater stunning, perceptive magicks as an alternative make other human beings perceive you as more lovely. This has its execs and cons. If you simply need to be greater attractive to others, this is typically a legitimate manner to go and has the identical results as the alternative varieties of beauty spells. However, because perceptive magicks don’t absolutely regulate any characteristics approximately yourself they don’t truly make you greater lovely in keeping with se. Instead, they just make others see you as more lovely. In a manner, that is a form of phantasm forged not on you, however on the 1/3 party perceiving you. beauty spells

The mechanism at the back of this makes perceptive beauty spells greater tough to solid, which is arguably a con. However, a pro is that due to the fact the appeal isn’t affecting you, however, a third party, it might be greater efficiency. The 0.33 birthday celebration looking upon you will see you as greater lovely greater regularly, in place of creating a judgment primarily based on your bodily look or physical traits. This makes perceptive beauty spells the fave of human beings with a selected target, including an ex-lover. When attempting to make you extra attractive to a particular man or woman, perceptive magicks are some of the maximum powerful alternatives obtainable.

As I look out into the arena, I see so much to be thankful for. Surrounded by way of beauty, I am left with no question that we live in a spirit-filled global that is becoming greater authentic in the beauty that it can admire. For goodbye we’ve got come to define beauty on a superficial stage, however as we grow, so will our capacity to appreciate beauty grow inside us.

With this, keep in mind that simplest can we recognize and appreciate what is simply lovely while we’ve got unified with the essence of our personal beauty within ourselves. So many warfares to locate the beauty of the globe once they look outside. Fearful of what they will stumble upon, they see an international packed with anger, hostility, and ugliness, and because this is what they see, that is what becomes actual for them, and they hold to live as their self-pleasant prophecy would have it’s.

Neglecting their personal splendor, they have got swallowed a nightmare pill which alters dramatically the world wherein they see. Turning far from the spirit, they have selected to embrace the ego, which sees things continually in a distorted mild. With energy and strength to advantage for itself, the ego is dedicated not to try to find beauty, however to locating that that could construct it up inside the eyes of the arena. Concerned with the physical global and alluring those inside it, it isn’t at all interested in the information of the spirit.

Not trying to be the protagonist in its personal loss of life, the ego has a vested hobby in preserving the genuine source of beauty from your eyes. Not trying you to revel in the awe that beauty inspires, it seeks to maintain you in a nation of boredom wherein you ask no questions of existence. Asking no questions, you quit to engage with life, and you deprive your self of the solutions that God desires to deliver to you. This is what its approach to be reactive to life, and to go through in the technique.

Called to be proactive, we do no longer grow in our experience of existence, if we’ve closed ourselves off to what it seeks to teach us. Wanting to expose us the splendor inside the international and in ourselves, it’s miles an incline trainer, however, a teacher has no role to occupy with out a student in attendance. This is why we should be open-minded in splendor’s presence. With a whole lot to offer, there’s a good deal to learn about the splendor of God which manifests itself in all matters.

It is said that splendor is in the attention of the beholder. What this means to me is that every people have the ability to discover beauty in various things. What some label stunning, others might label unsightly, and vice versa. But does it clearly count what verdict is surpassed on whether something is attractive to the attention or now not? What matters clearly is the seed of splendor to be discovered in all matters that God has created. With the beauty of the writer pervading every one of his creations, that beauty is virtually there to see. The question then will become what’s the first-rate of the imaginative and prescient of the observer?Everywhere

Many are capable of seeing the beauty in all that surrounds them, however, even more, are not. Selective in what they ascribe the label ‘stunning’ to, those human beings have selected to honor the thoughts above the heart, that is all to discriminate. Seeing more than the mind is capable of seeing, the heart is aware of that it is futile to decide, as it realizes that judgment exceeded on that which seems in a faded light is falsely condemned. Seeing only a portion of the entire, a great deal is misunderstood; and embracing handiest an element, a lot is rejected as beside the point. See on this, the damaging game that we play while we pick to have the ego’s eyes be the clear out with which we view the sector.

Seeing handiest fragments of beauty that it has infected via its personal judgment, much is discarded, or even less honored, for God can not be seen by using that which despises his presence. Wanting you not to see him, the ego will lead you to label as unpleasant, lots that are beautiful in appearance and substance.

Intense in its loathing, the ego is not usually rational in its judgment, and even in its fact, it misses much to be preferred. See on this how the ego’s arrogance frequently leads it to desert that that could otherwise serve it. Cursed in its blindness, it makes no longer for wise recommend to the one who searches for a deeper revel in of existence.

Wanting to enjoy love, one needs to consult the coronary heart, being the center of beauty in the self. Being not break free God, it’s miles the gift that God has given us to revel in the arena. Blessed with a good deal, we are able to locate plenty pleasure while we appearance upon the sector with religious eyes. Hindered now not by means of that which can be the ego’s shortcomings, we will see the affection at the back of the barriers, and the differences which make the marvelous not unusual.

Blessed in spirit, we ought to not take for granted that that’s able to teach us who we sincerely are. Endowed with knowledge, all of God’s creations are successful teachers, and assuming now not a separate identification from him, they may be models to be emulated. With this, learn that splendor is distorted because the separation is affected. So as you tour a ways from him, so will your capacity to experience beauty lessen in electricity. Beauty

Concerned broadly speaking with attaching labels in the second, what eludes you is the splendor inherent in getting into the instant. To enter the moment is to join with God for your heart, and notice what he sees inside the physical global. With all that he created being exact, you’re then able to see the affection that pervades the whole lot within the light of the spirit. Appreciating the whole thing simply as it’s miles, you remember that it’s miles sufficient and that the ego does not have to be invited to enhance what is entire in itself.

Complete, the presents of God are holy in what they hold and what they supply. Endowed with splendor, they carry the misplaced guy, a good deal this is beneficial. Longing for God, people who are lost, go through of their desperation. Convinced of their own ugliness, the recollections of their eternal splendor slip into the beyond. But the beyond is not misplaced for all time, for each phantasm stands to be corrected, and as a partner with eternity, it’ll now not fail to show itself in a touch that the moment has in keep, for the kid who sees genuinely now, now not longing for extra.

One of the maximum memorable times that I do not forget beauty touching me deeply changed into in Florence when I went to look Michelangelo’s David. I had heard from many humans how exceptional this classical piece of sculpture became, however hearing a second-hand account doesn’t virtually put together you for the effect that it has at the soul, while you see it in man or woman. To say that I became stunned via its splendor might be an irony. I turned into left surely speechless! To assume that one man saw this masterpiece in that block of marble and noticed it as his purpose to carry it into existence for all to enjoy is awe inspiring to me.

But as I turned into standing there, just watching up at the masterwork, I knew not the distraction of concept that tried to influence my mind to intellectualize how the work changed into introduced to existence. This allowed me to center myself and permit the profound splendor that emanated from the bright white floor, pass my spirit powerfully at the moment. And as I just allowed the moment to the touch me, I felt for a moment just how Michelangelo have to have felt with the chisel in his hand and the spirit in his coronary heart, for as I am no longer by myself with my pen, he became no longer by myself along with his equipment, for with every incision had God’s hand discovered itself so lightly and lovingly.

All in all, I spent approximately an hour in the enterprise of David, listening simplest to the silence which changed into my trainer. And as I meditated on what had greeted my senses, I felt a deep sense of appreciation start to emerge, and as my eyes started out to well up with tears, my consistent accomplice placated my fears that I might miss some thing, a second, which taught me who I am, no longer by myself in battle, however lovely and honest.

To recognize Michelangelo need to have been to be in the organization of a splendid lover. Here become a person who made it his existence’s purpose to serve the sector with the aid of making show up in bodily shape, the affection that he carried inner. How else are you able to give an explanation for it? To check out the eyes of David is to realize with out a shadow of a doubt that he changed into conceived in love, and because it was this love that stuffed Michelangelo’s coronary heart, the theory become inevitable.

With this, keep in mind that love in no way leaves beauty unexpressed, for that isn’t love’s way. And in the identical manner that love will by no means leave beauty unexpressed, so will it in no way leave the witnesses to that beauty untouched, for the heart that changed into stimulated to convey the beauty to existence, is in no way break away the coronary heart of the witness who has visible in that beauty a clear photograph of themselves found out.

See on this, how all embodiments of beauty carry a reflection that is not one dimensional. If you had been to examine a rose, you would be moved by way of the splendor of that rose, but what has moved you isn’t always limited to the petals, stem, and thorns which make up that rose. What you get hold of from that rose is an experience of the beauty of nature that’s in no manner cut loose all that the rose is, because nature is the essence of its being. And as it is with the rose, so it’s far with you, due to the fact nature is the very essence of who you’re. As God has breathed life into the rose, so has God breathed existence into you, and in it, you get a glimpse of not only its glory, however your glory as nicely, which is a stranger now not to the consideration of God. grow

Endowed with all that is beautiful, do not doubt what’s yours to offer, and as you awake from your shut-eye, so will your brothers and sisters enjoy an extra nonviolent relaxation. Not suffering from their hideous nightmares, a new joy will emerge in the shape of a dream that isn’t always isolated in the way it involves bless them. As splendor multiplies, so does its visions, in the thoughts that have unified itself with the heart.

Filled with this love, pleasure replaces sorrow and gratitude replace judgment, for as the Lord has spoken, you want no longer open your mouth to talk. Speaking in superb tongues, you are left in no doubt that what he has to mention is real. Beautiful in its composition, it’s miles undeniably powerful in its resonance. Teaching your coronary heart, the mind finds relaxation, subsumed through the grace that has cradled it, and when it awakes, enormous beauty awaits it, in each, it’s courting to the bodily and the endless which recognize no divide. Being what beauty has conquered, love has done its paintings, through the eye of the spirit that can not be blinded to the arena’s well worth.

Beauty is fact’s smile
when she beholds her personal face in an ideal mirror.

Beauty is in the perfect of ideal harmony
which is within the regular being;
the reality the proper comprehension of the ordinary mind.

— Rabindranath Tagore

The whole concept of real splendor may be difficult to define, in spite of being a famous term. Everyone has their very own reviews about what constitutes actual splendor. One way to consider it is to don’t forget what makes you smile in this kind of radiant way that it attracts people to want to be in your presence. Ideal beauty is that that’s well known or possesses features widely attributed to splendor in a specific tradition for perfection.

Just like Audrey Hepburn’s iconic quote:
For appealing lips, talk phrases of kindness.
For lovely eyes, are seeking for out the good in human beings.
For a slim determine, percentage your meals with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, allow an infant run his or her palms through it once an afternoon.
For poise, stroll with the knowledge that you in no way stroll on my own.

There might be rarely any character who might now not like to look lovely. Over a period of time beauty slowly fades away due to age and what is left are signs and symptoms of aging. To combat these signs, human beings use numerous methods like anti-growing old lotions, Botox, among others. They seek to preserve their splendor (which they agree with is physical) intact for as long as feasible. This is how they idiot themselves into believing that they are an aspect of beauty. They earn to be fantastic and continue to be the center of attraction.Bliss

Fair complexion, sharp capabilities are not the only criteria for being beauteous. These are outside elements. External splendor is like a water bubble, exists only for some time. Apart from the face hidden in the back of the one’s layers of make-up, there may be a coronary heart; chic, complete of affection and linked on your mind.That is real contentment. You need to make yourself comely to revel in the actual beauty.

Helen Keller stated, “The most stunning matters within the world cannot be visible or even touched, they should be felt with the heart.” Every single man or woman existing on the earth is born stunning. Moral traits, ethical standards, concepts are brought gain to real beauty. Intellect and intelligence with beauty are an unprecedented satisfactory. And whilst someone has internal and external beauty it is ‘icing on the cake’. Beauty and teens are regularly appeared as synonymous with each other. The balance of frame and soul is a lot critical than the use of a wrinkle doing away with cream.

Let me run ideas through my mind and spot wherein it takes me. Let’s take into account good-looking humans, locations, gadgets, tremendous state of affairs at a gallery, perceptional extraordinary angled picture or let’s drill right down to a more materialistic residing just like the breathtaking structure of my bungalow, with a balcony over-searching a serene swimming pool. I even have mouth-watering meals sitting on a table beside me, sending out the most heavenly aroma that is tantalizing to the mind, and tickling my taste buds.

I should cross on with more description but it’d be painfully mundane to examine, that is why I’ll leave it as “blah blah blah.”

Having visible life beneath quality occasions with great resources (mom//dad/bro/buddies/teacher/ money… & what no longer) with great residing conditions & then having fallen away & apart with this stuff briefly, to get it returned in a brand new format & living terms, I recognise that Beauty is a very relative terminology, pretty misunderstood & I dare say, pretty misapplied too.

So then what’s the real beauty for me?

I think & agree with that the real splendor is to comprehend that I am capable of realizing, think, examine, decimate, disintegrate, research – unlearn, agree with & nevertheless redefine my belief system or call it first-class track.

The actual beauty consequently is that I am a human, that’s the gift of nature, and I am able to comprehend that there may be GOD in many forms & capabilities, lots of his manifestation are even known as horrific & I am mutely searching at it to understand what nature is telling me.

And the actual splendor based on the above idea for me is understanding; the assimilation of various pieces of information, while put in a logical way is priceless information.
Knowledge on my own is a real beauty. Beauty

Having stated this, I need to say that if I place an e-book of esoteric know-how of yore & a few great prints of information on a donkey’s head he does not emerge as informed. What will make him informed is the right utility of that expertise inside the right location, within the proper measure, on the proper time, and the way does one get it aside nature’s Grace? One gets it via the guru – the proverbial instructor.

Hence the Guru or the teacher is the real beauty

The instructor, who gave me expertise and notion, of what’s what & how to see it. If no longer for the proper instructor, I ought to nonetheless assume that 2 + 2 = 5 and still live like a donkey without realizing the 2 = 2 of lifestyles.

And who gave me the instructor? That’s a blind answer – my DAD. He put me through training each formal & informal & while giving me this he gave me as a bonus a gaggle of buddies from college to university, which I could filter out over a time period thru experience & maturity.

Hence father is the real beauty.

And who gave me my father? My mother pointed him out because she is the only human who virtually knows the fact of whose seed made me. We all recognize the mother’s adventure of parenting. Let me now not make it emotionally sensitive & difficult on it, we all realize what our mothers are. Period.

Hence my mom is actual splendor.

Now tell me how do I get an excellent mom, I cannot make a desire, really no one took my permission to provide me this birth – genuinely choiceless.

So the real beauty is the truth that I recognize that there’s a person up there taking care of my soul.

Mata, pita, guru, top Mitra (Friend) & god are the real beauty – positioned them all & mix it – it’s God’s grace.

I realize that I am a unique advent of this nature, none like me & 2nd to none, no one has ever been created like me in eons that have exceeded by means of in this universe & there never may be one like me in the destiny of this universe. I am me, I am a blessing to my dad and mom, I am the best desires of my good wisher’s, I am the hope of all those new the next day’s so as to spread via me, I am the kind of gratitude, the mom of all virtue’s – I am Rewa and the real splendor is I can understand it. smile

For me Miss Universe Sushmita Sen, Miss World Aishwarya Bachchan are similarly stunning to Maharani Gayatri Devi, Mother Teresa, Medha Patkar, Kiran Bedi, Lata Mangeshkar or a rural girls working in the field all day yet successfully takes care of her small international. Beauty is so divine that it stimulated Kalidas to write Meghdoot and Tulsidas to create Ramayan.

The summary is God’s ever beautiful introduction is WOMAN who nurtures and creates a new lifestyle.

During my shuttle to Manhattan at the Express Bus one morning, I had the enterprise and pride of reading the March issue of Allure magazine. I commenced by reading the Letter from the Editor Linda Wells and stumped upon this striking trap phrase, the “pursuit of splendor”. Linda explains this phenomenon to be similar to the pursuit of the American Dream. It is “a right to determine and improve our crucial selves, psychologically and physically…That transcends gender, magnificence, race, age and sexual orientation.” I idea to myself, “this is so real!” What individual does today no longer need to be and feel beautiful? There isn’t any doubt, that we as human beings are acutely sensitive to our bodily appearances and could do something to gain or to keep our non-public beauty. Our insatiable need for all things “beauty” proves that we’re all in full pursuit and unapologetically so.

We cannot help ourselves in the presence of factors or humans that name to our sensibilities. Physical beauty, even though a remember of flavor and opinion is also characterized by way of society’s perspectives. In maximum cultures, the life of symmetry or stability is a determining factor of beauty because it suggests the absence of “flaws” or “defects”. Facial stability, complexion, frame form, and size, in addition to youthfulness are all standardizations of beauty. The characterization of splendor, however, can not be understood without additionally understanding that splendor has some other aspect to it – One that is not so physical, but rather metaphysical (an extra intangible element ). We cannot always see or touch it, yet its presence is simple. With that being stated, we can not exclude psychological factors which include character, intelligence, politeness, elegance or air of mystery as figuring out factors in spotting splendor.Pursuit

As I researched greater into this splendor craze, I stumbled upon some very thrilling findings. To my wonder, (good enough perhaps now not so surprised) researchers have found that owning bodily elegance may be quite influential in a person’s life. Someone who’s taken into consideration to be beautiful is likely to get better grades, get hold of better care from their medical doctors, obtain lighter prison sentences and earn more money. As if we do not have enough troubles inside the global today, now we understand that uncontrollable factors like our God-given splendor or “lack thereof”, is simply another social barrier to feature to our listing. Whether we renowned it or not, and whether we do this consciously or unconsciously, this sort of “lookism” has plagued our society for years and might shed some light at the depth of vanity that exists in our global nowadays.

This daunting truth really affects how we perceive ourselves in addition to others. The photos we see on tv additionally determine what we don’t forget to be lovely and is the using pressure towards this look for perfection. We spend hundreds of bucks and insurmountable time purchasing online or on the department shops, buying all sorts of beauty products, making nail, hair, facial and botox appointments, studying fashion magazines and taking specific note of what our favourite celebrities are sporting, doing and the usage of to stay slim, younger and yes, beautiful.

Let’s no longer forget about, that there was once a time whilst we have been all mystified with the aid of the lovely fashions and celebrities, who flawlessly walked the pink carpets and flanked the covers of magazines effortlessly, or at the least so it seemed. We dreamed approximately being them and looking like them, thinking they had been born perfectly that manner. Thanks to our growing obsession with movie star-lifestyles, the shameless and countless invasions of privateness via truth television, the social networks and the “tell-all” craze, we not simplest have the data and the information however also get right of entry to the once “pinnacle mystery” once in a while intense, bodily enhancers.

Don’t get me wrong, the “pursuit of beauty” doesn’t ought to suggest a journey to a plastic medical professional, nor is it an elusive commodity accessible to only to the rich and well-known. We can all be physically lovely! The multi-billion greenback splendor industry has made certain to meet our each splendor need by using bombarding us with a plethora of products and services geared toward making us feel and look more youthful and extra lovely.The possibilities and assets to be had to us are limitless in this department. We have products that make us look younger, merchandise that make our skin smoother, products that make our stomachs flat, merchandise that make our lips plumper, products that deliver us fuller hair, products that make our lashes longer and thicker, stylists, eyebrow threaders, make-up artists, style trends that alternate every season, adornments like jewelry, necklaces, tattoos, hats etc all of us use these things to beautify our non-public beauty and elegance in a few way.Beauty

The reality is, however, our pursuit of splendor is not just about exploiting our “sexual capital”. It’s not simply the physical element of beauty that enamors us. We are searching for a combination between the visible and the unseen – The bodily (outer) and the psychological (inner) because they both thrive off each different. I like many, accept as true with that actual beauty comes from within. Inner beauty in my definition is that undeniable, profound light that shines from you and onto the arena. It is your air of mystery, your spirit, the stamp you go away in the back of after someone meets you for the primary time. My father likes to consult this intangible, nonsecular side of our human nature because of the “inner guy” or “woman”. Though this “internal splendor” might also come less difficult to a few than others, it is the start degrees to satisfying this intrinsic desire for physical pleasure or happiness.

If psychologically we can discover the power and self-belief to look ourselves as beautiful regardless of what, then the sector might have no desire, however, to view us that manner. Any bodily imperfections that we might imagine we own can disappear. Possessing inner splendor is the foundation of the pursuit of splendor. After all, we recognize that with age bodily beauty disappears and there are many uncontrollable forces which could without difficulty take away or lessen our bodily splendor, like an extreme twist of fate or ailment as an instance. Inner beauty comes from a deeper area. It oozes from your coronary heart and soul and serves as a complimentary issue to physical beauty.

So why this urgency to want to be beautiful? What lies beneath this so-known as a pursuit? What is it that actions us into the search for close to perfection? The fact is, the pursuit of splendor is in truth the pursuit of happiness – they may be one of the identical. Though Linda refers to this pursuit as being “fairly American”, to me, it’s miles extra so, undeniably human. Whether it’s miles a physical or mental development to ourselves, we are all in look for this completeness. It is a calling to being someone larger and higher than we’ve got ever been. It’s about one foot out your door normal feeling like a ray of light, assured with every step you take. It is an aim, a well-known to set, that after completed, is rewarded with an entire life of self-belief, self-warranty, delight, grace, poise and enthusiasm for life.Manhattan

We, therefore, can’t deny that we are in a brand new technology, in which splendor and the purchase of it, is no longer an enigmatic, complicated phenomenon, but instead an expression of one’s pleasure and self-esteem. Beauty has now ended up a way of life, and we’ve got found out that physical splendor cannot stand on its own, we are able to most effectively enhance it. It is simplest while there is complete synergy among the physical (outer splendor) and the psychological (internal beauty) operating in complete stability with each different like yin and yang, can we competently say we’ve got completed our purpose in this pursuit of splendor and in the end happiness.
